With over 35 million downloads under their belt, we are delighted to announce the highly anticipated return of The Guilty Feminist, Vicar Street 6th November. Podcast host Deborah Frances-White with special guest yet to be announced, will discuss their noble goals as 21st century feminists and the paradoxes and insecurities which undermine them.
This year we bring UK’s #1 LGBTQ+ Podcast A Gay and a NonGay to The Sugar Club, 10th November. Close friends James Barr and Dan Hudson discuss differences between LGBTQ+ and NonGay people to life on stage in an absurdly simple but hilarious premise.
Following their sold-out show at Vodafone Comedy Festival comedy duo The 2 Johnnies return with their biggest live show, Vicar Street 14th November. Covering riding, gaelic games and parish news, The 2 Johnnies are a success story in the podcast world, placing them as #1 on Ireland’s podcast charts every week for 80 weeks.
Continuing with the success stories, IT GALZ LIVE! have continued to sell out live shows throughout Ireland since their debut at last year’s podcast festival. Also hosting their biggest headline show to date, Vicar Street, 16th November. IT GALZ Podcast is a dose of cultural commentary by Jenny Claffey and Lindsay Hamilton.

For International Men’s Day, BlindBoy will celebrate with a special live show on 19th November.

We go across to Liberty Hall for The Dollop on 21st November. The Dollop is a US history podcast with comedian hosts Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds. History buff Dave decided to turn his hobby into a podcast. Each episode he reads one weird and disturbing story from the American past to Gareth, who has never heard the tale. Gareth's hilarious reactions are why The Dollop is in the top 20 downloaded comedy podcasts in the US, Canada, and Australia.
